Project Description

The objective of the project is to enhance road access in selected rural areas in support of livelihoods of local communities and to provide immediate response to an eligible crisis or emergency as needed. The project has five components.

  1. Rehabilitation and maintenance of feeder roads - will finance rehabilitation and maintenance works on sections of secondary, tertiary, vicinal, and some unclassified roads to enhance mobility in selected districts in Zambezia and Nampula Provinces, including design studies and supervision activities.
  2. Rehabilitation of primary road network - will support rehabilitation of around 70 km of primary road to enhance connectivity to markets, ports, and other economic and social services. The intervention will include, among other things, improvement of road safety facilities, improvement of intersections, surface rehabilitation, and rehabilitation or reconstruction of culverts. The project will adopt the OPRC approach to implement rehabilitation and maintenance works.
  3. Pilot rural transport services - will support a pilot rural transport services program on selected feeder roads, under Component 1, to improve mobility and access to economic and social services to population groups in the target areas. It will include, among other things, assessment of existing transport services and identification of market barriers to provision of transport services, and the usage of information and communication technology-based solutions to connect services and end users in a reliable and cost effective manner. The pilot would benefit local communities near road improvement investments, for instance, through expanded access to markets, services, and agricultural inputs.
  4. Capacity building and project administration - will finance knowledge development and institutional strengthening activities for management of rural roads at the national and subnational levels, road safety, and enhanced citizen engagement.
  5. Zero-budget Contingency Component - will facilitate access to rapid financing by allowing reallocation of uncommitted project funds in the event of a natural disaster either by a formal declaration of a national or regional state of emergency or upon a formal request from the GoM.
